The 1960s produced an extensive variety of films in a plethora of different genres. It was simultaneously the era of John Wayne’s spaghetti westerns and sci-fi hits like 2001: A Space Odyssey. Musicals like West Side Story and The Sound o Music were extremely popular, as were horror films like The Night of the Living Dead. The 1960s also served as a transitional era for Hollywood, as many filmmakers began to push the boundaries of what is acceptable depending on the rating system. Films after the 1960s tend to be a lot more “racy” as a result. This groundbreaking era is known as the New Hollywood Movement, and it spanned from the late 1960s into the 1980s. With so many movies to see, how many ’60s films have you seen? Take this quiz to find out!

Did you know?

The Graduate

The Graduate is one of the most groundbreaking films of the 1960s decade. Dustin Hoffman starred in this movie and actually had to drop out of The Producers to be in The Graduate. Even Hoffman did not think he was right for the role, as he thought Robert Redford was a better fit. However, he took the job! The famous song "Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson" is of course from this film, as the older woman pursuing Hoffman's character is named Mrs. Robinson. In real life, their relationship is much less creepy, because even though their characters are a few decades apart in age, the actors were only six years apart. This film grossed a whopping $104.9 million.
